We should get together and do some shooting sometime. I've found a spot up by Glacier on Hwy 542 that I've shot out to just over 1k at for several years that's accessible late May through the snow flying, more or less. Did some more exploring this year and found some shooting out to around 1500 or so--all accessible by vehicle on old logging roads. Been shooting the 300RUM up there for 3-4 years now, I guess, but am anxiously awaiting my 338 AX (BAT HRPIC with 30" Rock Ck. barrel, 4" Wyatt's, jewell, Manners T2, etc., NF 5.5-20x50 NPR1) from Kirby which should be ready late winter or so. I'll be wanting to stretch her out soon.
Good luck with your barrel swap and the 265's...what's your predicted G1 @ 2800fps on that? That'll be very interesting to follow. What powder--US869? H50BMG might work with that heavy a bullet...hmmm...it's supposed to be very temp stable from reputable source.
